Pros: -shows grades -shows lunch menu - shows which bus I ride. Etc - can log into any account -can change profile picture. -shows katyisd news. - if u have allergies it still shows u what type of food for lunch you can still eat. - shows which subject is which teacher. Cons: - once you go into the app, it brings u back to the home page. You have to do it twice to get in the app. - grades load so slow. If u had a test, it would take 2-3 days to load! - when grades are actually loaded, sometimes the average score doesn’t change! - doesn’t show if the grade is major, minor, or other. Thanks for reading this long review!
There is zero support for issues within this app...just click on help (when you're ALREADY inside and using app, and you'll find a video on how to DOWNLOAD the app). This is a perfect metaphor for the entire situation. I'm USING THE APP, so I probably already know how to download said app....PERHAPS, I need another form of assistance, ya? KISD has my husband's contact info listed under my name and evidently there is no way in the universe to fix their mistake. Ugh. Not to mention, no longer receiving the alerts I set up years ago, and have since double-checked are still set to alert me about low grades (to no avail). The app DID just add new ways to pay for school lunches and sports fees- YAY! Unsurprisingly, accepting money via 'mypaymentsplus', on this app, seems to work flawlessly. Heaven forbid they ever Double charge you and end up owing you $60...because you'll never see that again, despite calling & emailing the school and the software company a dozen times. So, to sum up- If you're looking for a directory of staff emails, this app is for you. However, if you'd like to utilize all of the seemingly integrated programs within the HAC, or EVER needing customer support, this is not the app for you.
The grades don't update as quickly as home access center updates the grades. It always lags behind and I realize that it's pretty much pointless to have the app and that I should just check my grades via browser anyways. I wish you'd get notified the instant you get a grade put in. I don't use the app for much else.
This was a great app at first. Everything I needed regarding school was here. Specially to check grades. Then the grades stopped showing and several glitches started to appear. It’s not reliable but if everything gets fix it would be great
For me, the whole point of this app was to get updates on my childrens' grades. Unfortunately I stopped getting notifications some time in the Spring 2017 & no one seems to know how to get this corrected. But I sure do get daily notifications about every single newsletter that gets posted. Thumbs down.
I am happy the have this app and believe it was well needed in today's technology world. I love having the Katy ISD information at my fingertips. However, I am looking forward to newer/updated versions of this app. I mainly use this app to check grades on my 4 children and conveniently I can see the balance of their MealPay accounts. It would be nice if when I click on MPP, it would open the app instead of the web page. Grades can take up to 2+ days to sync to the app. That I believe is the best opportunity to make this app better. Looking forward to new versions.
Great! But would be better if you add support for Apple Watch
Please add support for Apple Watch so we don't have to check our grades on our phones and we can check the news and grades on our wrist!!! Please add support this is really needed and do not ignore!!!!⌚️
A high five to KatyISD for making a really smooth and easy to use app! It has everything from what books I have checked out, to how much money is in my lunch account.... It even shows you sports and fine arts events coming up and I get access to school email. My days of jumping hoops on the dumb confusing website is over :P
The Katy ISD app is VERY thorough :) It's so smart! It's convenient and very user friendly. The only thing I wish for is a better working MyPayments+ icon, once in the app. Right now, if you click the icon, it will take you to the App Store even if you already have the app downloaded onto your device. Other than that, job well done!
Great app! Love how easy it is to access grades and assignments. It's nice to have everything in one place that is easy to maneuver through. For future versions, would love to see the meal pay app integrated into the app instead of sending to the meal pay web site. Overall...impressed. Way to go KISD!
This app is great! Highly recommend tapping school work icon (A+), plugging in kids' user and passwords and unlocking the door to all info you need on your kiddos--grades, library checkouts, lunch $, attendance, upcoming grades in teachers' grade books!
I used to love this app, but something happened recently and I can no longer see my children's information and all the alerts are from last school year. Even after deleting them, they come back!?!?! Please fix!
I love the app for the most part, but it keeps changing my info to someone named Mary Hart and I'm guessing her phone number. My son's band teacher sent me an email and it came addressed to Mary Hart. :(
Needs updates and improvements like on time class grade updates, doesn't need wifi to work (constantly have to sign back in), and also needs teacher comments/messages you can receive to improve in class.
